rhubarb

Westwoods

The Westwood Family grow Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb and has been farming since the late 1800’s.

Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb roots are grown outdoor in the fields, for two to three years, before they are lifted in early to late November, to be taken into the forcing sheds. This can only happen after the roots have received enough cold which helps break the dormancy of the rhubarb crowns. During the two years,’ the rhubarb is grown outside, it requires lots of sunshine and nitrogen to build up the energy in the root as once in the forcing sheds, it received no more feeding. The nitrogen comes from the “shoddy”, which is released slowly over a three-year period. Ideal for the rhubarb.

Once bedded into the sheds, the roots are heated and supplied with the right amount of water, and three weeks later the forced crop can start to be harvested. The rhubarb is grown in complete darkness & harvested by candlelight, to keep the stems bright pink and the leaves yellow. The forced crop tends to be very tender and much sweeter than the rhubarb produced outside.

Oliver Kay has worked with the Westwoods for the past 10 years.

woodlands

Woodlands Farm

Woodlands Farm covers approximately 25 acres near Knutsford, Cheshire & the Halman family have been farming in Cheshire for 123 years and are now proudly into their 5th generation.

Oliver Kay Produce & Roy Halman have worked over 15 years together to build a very successful relationship & it is this continuity of trade & affiliation that has allowed Oliver Kay Produce to offer the finest quality Outdoor Grown Rhubarb, Lollo Rosso, Lollo Biondi, Oak Leaf, Cos & Flat Lettuce that the North West has to offer.

Some of the products are grown under glass to extend their growing season, ie: Flat Lettuce.

The lettuces & Rhubarb are picked fresh every morning & packed in the field ready for dispatch. We collect them from the Farm around noon for delivery to you the following morning. Their products are always first-rate in terms of both quality & consistency & (importantly) yield.

We pride ourselves on the close relationships that we have with our farmers & growers, many of whom have grown alongside us from Day One. This gives us access to the best of their crop(s) at their very best prices.

The farm is 6.5 acres, with over an acre of polytunnels built exclusively for the growth of the Pak Choi. Emison’s are a member of Red Tractor Scheme, Assured Produce and Salsa. We have worked with them for over 10 years. 

Westlands

Westlands

Continuing the traditions of their Dutch heritage, Westland’s namesake originates from a region in western Netherlands. 

It’s been 80 years since the company’s beginning in the Vale of Evesham, and the principles of personal care and product quality exhibited across the micro leaves, edible flowers and speciality produce ranges that Westlands supply, have been passed down from generation to generation.

Firs

Poskitts

The Firs Farm, Yorkshire is home to Guy Poskitt who supplies us with parsnips & carrots. The land is ideal for these root vegetables due to the sandy soil. 

The products are grown, washed, packed & distributed all from the farm to enable them to control all aspect of the production.
